Barred Owl

Barred Owls are seldom seen as they are mostly nocturnal, though they may come out to hunt on gray dark days. I got this photo in late afternoon on a rainy day. The name comes from the "bars" on their chest.   high-res

After a few minutes, this Barred Owl flew across the road and perched on a low branch in a ravine by a stream, this time showing me his back side. In this shot, his head is turned backwards, 180 degrees. Beautiful birds, the Barred Owl.   high-res

May 2017 - I met this Barred Owl at the Winter Raptor Fest at our local Washington County Fair Grounds. Such a beautiful bird, and I didn't have to get rained on. :)   high-res

The Barred Owl, one of the more elusive birds.
